There has been suggestions that Kaizer Chiefs are becoming a one-man team following Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana's hat-trick against Stellenbosch. 

Bimenyimana, a focal point of Chiefs' attack is already the league's joint-leading goalscorer with Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile on six goals.

Ahead of their next outing against Chippa United on Saturday, Amakhosi head coach Arthur Zwane says it would have been a different story if his two other attackers, Ashley Du Preez and Kgaogelo Sekgota, were burying the clear chances they've had in recent games. 

"Football is a game of mistakes, it's just unfortunate most of the chances we create are missed, by maybe 'Ash' (Ashley Du Preez) or sometimes Sekgota if you can look at the other games we've played earlier," Zwane told journalists at the club's open media day at the Naturena village. 

"Like (against) Marumo (Gallants), early in the game (Sekgota) had a one on one, had he converted that one it could have been a different story altogether in terms of results.  

"Ja, it wasn't to be, for the fact that we're creating (many) goalscoring opportunities, it shows that we're on the right track, it shows that what we want to achieve is improving. It's better than not creating goalscoring opportunities at all," he said.

Sekgota himself is itching to get his first goal for the club, as he has been given a major role as a starter in a front three by Zwane. 

The former Swallows winger has two assists so far this season and says he feels he could have finally scored against Stellies but luck was not on his side. 

"Personally, I think I was close to getting a goal last game, unfortunately it didn't happen," Sekgota told journalists at the village. 

"Obviously, game by game, different situations in a football pitch, good chances, better chances, half chances to have in a football match, hopefully it will come," he said.
